2010 President Scholar

Postby 24by7mum » Tue Aug 17, 2010 5:27 pm

WINNING a prestigious scholarship aside, this year's four President's Scholars can also lay claim to a few firsts.

Joshua Rene Jeyaraj is the first International Baccalaureate graduate to receive the scholarship; Officer Cadet (OCT) Joshua Goh is the first President's Scholar from Catholic Junior College in 25 years.

OCT Sharon Tan is the first female Singapore Armed Forces Overseas Scholar; and Chow Yi Ling is the first girl from Victoria Junior College to receive the President's Scholarship.

At the award ceremony held at the Istana on Friday, President S R Nathan urged this year's recipients to emulate Singapore founding fathers like the late S Rajaratnam, Dr Goh Keng Swee and Mr Lim Kim San.

'The future beckons us to produce many more visionary, brave and dedicated leaders...I hope you...will carry the torch and like our pioneers serve the nation with greater distinction and passion,' said Mr Nathan.

Recipients of the President's Scholarship, Singapore's most prestigious undergraduate award, are selected based on their leadership qualities, academic excellence, values and people skills. This year's recipients were picked from more than 2,000 who applied for a Public Service Commission (PSC) scholarship. The selection process included interviews and simulated exercises where candidates have to work through scenarios related to public service work.
